The Department of Chinese Studies will have the honour of appointing one to two distinguished Visiting Fellows each year from 2017 to 2021, thanks to the acuity of vision and generosity of James Lee, a Hong Kong based University of Sydney alumnus. Located within the School of Languages and Cultures, the Department’s priorities and specializations encompass a wide spectrum of studies in literature, language, linguistics, translation, and cultures.
These fellowships are designed to support the Department’s research and teaching activities, and will allow visiting academics to spend up to six months at the University of Sydney, January–June or June–November. As a condition of the fellowship, fellows will a negotiated number of public lectures and research seminars, as well as guest lectures in undergraduate units of study.
The Department will provide the visiting fellows with a return airfare and a living allowance, office accommodation, and practical research assistance within the School. The fellowships are non-stipendiary and ideally suited to academics on sabbatical leave. The fellows will become members of the University of Sydney during their appointment, and enjoy the benefits of being part of the large community of China scholars living in the vibrant multicultural city of Sydney. The Department will arrange regular social and intellectual exchanges with China scholars on campus and at the other universities in Sydney.
